No, the "COMPAT_SUNOS" kernel option deals only with syscall (ABI)
compat. I'm not aware of any sparc emulation package. Your best bet
would be (if possible) to ssh/telnet/whathaveyou into a sparc box and
run the software there. Which program are you intending to run? Maybe
there's some opensource equivalent in the FreeBSD ports.

Cheers,

        Of course it runs NetBSD!
